Cool Concept: Maptor Shows You the Way (6 pics)



Shaped like a small flashlight, Maptor is a tiny GPS device which displays a map using a small built-in projector. Instead of using a backlit LCD, you can just flash the map on any flat surface and a big red arrow will tell you exactly where you are.

What is a moment?



This beautiful short by Will Hoffman is called Moments. It is a celebration of all the different moments in our life: some joyful, some sad, and some just the mundane stuff that fills up our days. This film reminds me of Last Day Dream that I blogged about here. It has the same kind of impact on you. It makes you think about how you spend your time. I think I'll go take my dog for a… Continue

The Burden of Carrying Our Emotions - Dan May

The Persuasion of Penelope



Step into the mysterious world of Dan May and you'll find yourself amongst a large gathering of monsters. At first they may seem scary, but take a closer look and you'll find lonely creatures looking to find meaning in this world. The question is, are they really there? Or do they only appear when we need to reflect on our own troubled emotions and…

The Museum of Bad Art



The Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) is located just outside the men’s room in the basement of the Dedham Community Theatre near Boston. If you can't make it to visit that illustrious location then you can now, thanks to the magic of the Internet, view the collection online.





"Art too bad to be Ignored" is their motto. I have to agree that some of these items make me doubt the sanity of the… Continue

Madrid's Barajas Airport



I flew out of this airport some years ago and it's fantastic interiors fascinated me. It really is a beautiful airport. The mix of timber and metal, the curved ceilings, the big lights all worked perfectly together. It is a very unique and unusual design (as is Denver's DIA but that is a whole other style and structure)…

Experience Fashion's Night Out on Sept 10th!





Alright, so P-Diddy is getting on my nerves in this spot for Fashion's Night Out but I like it anyway. Celebs, designers and models have all gotten together to try and get you to shop. A little shallow perhaps? Yes, but since they're making this an extravaganza (i.e. experience), I had to post on it. Also, doesn't it make you feel a little bit better that everyone (even people in the fashion industry) is hurting for business?



Here's the 411 from their… Continue

It's Ok, I've Got You

I love this piece of mosaic art by Laura Pattison. This original piece was created out of a photograph that she had been keeping for quite some time. Made of stained glass, tiles, pebbles, shells, sand and more, it magically captures a beautiful moment in time.



"It's for my son's 30th birthday present, it's of him and his daughter Lois. I took the photo… Continue

Really Cute, Disturbing Art - Luke Chueh

The Soundtrack



Luke Chueh's pieces are really cute in an eerily disturbing way - and that's exactly why they're so great. Featuring sad and/or tortured characters, Chueh's work stems from the intolerance he suffered as child growing up as a Chinese-American.



Luke was born in Philadelphia, but raised in Fresno. In 2003, Chueh moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in…

It's Alessandra Ambrosio, Like You've Never Seen Her Before

Though this spread of Alessandra Ambrosio by Nino Munoz isn't quite new, we're sure that you'll forgive us. It first debuted in the June 2008 issue of Arena UK. The Brazilian bombshell sexes it up and makes us feel a bit..well, you know...faint.

Does anyone else need a cold shower after that?
